Richard E. Fuller Travel Slides: Art and Architecture of Mexico


Dr. Richard E. Fuller (1897-1976), Director of the Seattle Art Museum from 1933-1973, made an array of personal excursions to Mexico between 1944 and 1948. These were in addition to the research trips he was also carrying out at that time as Chairman of the U.S. Committee for the Study of ParĂ­cutin Volcano. Over the course of his travels, Fuller took numerous photographs of Mexican architecture and sculpture, which he later had transferred to glass slides. This collection documents several historic Toltec sites, detailed interiors and exteriors of many Colonial Period buildings, various monuments, civic structures, and works of art, and other rural and urban scenes of early 20th century Mexico.
